review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-09-10 04:39
The Day the Crayons Quit - Drew Daywalt,Oliver Jeffers

When Duncan goes to use his crayons he finds notes from all the crayons and how they are feeling! Red is overwhelmed. Purple is tired of being colored outside the lines. Beige doesn't like to be called light brown or dark tan and doesn't like being in second place to Brown! Grey is tired. White is feeling empty. Black doesn't like to be an outline. Green is writing for Yellow and Orange because they won't talk, they both think they should be the color of the sun! Blue is feeling like he needs a break, Pink is feeling unused and Peach doesn't like having a cover! Duncan has to figure out how to make all the crayons happy so he can continue to color! I would use this book to work on expression and voice!

Today I Feel Silly...and Other Moods That Make My Day
Today I Feel Silly: And Other Moods That Make My Day - Jamie Lee Curtis,Laura Cornell

This book is all about the different moods that a person has and is showed through a child. The little girl in the story has different things going on in her life and each new thing gives her a different emotion. These emotions are felt by everyone at some point or another and are great to be discussed in the classroom to let children know that emotions are a normal part of life. 

After reading this story, the teacher could make a chart and ask students to write down things that make them feel a certain way and record it on the chart so that students can see that different things make people feel different ways. The most important part of this story is to show that not everyone reacts the same way to the same situation. Everyone is different and each person should be accepted.
